Egypt on Thursday said it may disband the Muslim Brotherhood if a probe finds that the previously outlawed Islamist group stored weapons in its headquarters.

The Insurance and Social Affairs Ministry said that the General Department for Associations and the Management of Legal Affairs is scheduled to hold a meeting within a maximum of 10 days in which they will consider whether the Muslim Brotherhood should be dissolved, the Egypt Independent reported quoting an official source from the ministry.

PM’s struggle

New Prime Minister was faced with road blocks in forming a new cabinet and steering the deeply polarised nation through a transition phase, as the Muslim Brotherhood vowed to continue protests against the ouster of Morsi.

F-16 delivery

The slated US delivery of four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt was still “scheduled as planned,” a senior US official said.
